    I was checking my system memory and stats and it says my computer is using 50% of the cpu under my profile (system is 0%).

    I restarted it and it still uses 50%. Correct me if I am wrong but isn't this unusually high? If yes what should I do about it?

    Oh and my computer still runs smoothly with it (so I was thinking it was maybe a glitch) but if it is not a glitch I would love to have the extra power to run games at higher settings.

    Thanks for any imput

    Take a look at the running processes with Activity Monitor. What's taking up your CPU time?
